Frame Sliders - June 14, 2011, 01:43 PM

I just bought some new frame sliders. Has anyone here installed their own? Should I attempt it myself or should I take it somewhere? Is there any reasonably priced places around arlington/alexandria area?

im sure plenty of people on here have installed and would be surprised if someone doesnt offer to help you install.

are they no-cut (bolt on) or do they require cutting plastics? what kind are they?

They're simple to install....most of the time. Don't forget to use Loctite on the bolts.

Do one side at a time.

And if you have to cut your plastics....measure 4 times, cut once.

You may even be able to solicit help from someone on here to help you out, rather than taking it to a shop and paying them $50 or more.

No cuts are as simple as taking out the one motor mount bolt and putting in the slider and usually they are left/right dependent as the bolts are different length's.

If you have to cut take the plastic's off and loosen the motor mount bolts.
Mark the head of the bolt with something like shoe polish.
Put the plastics back on and then pull the motor mount bolt out until it touches the back side of the plastics and turn it around a few times till the polish marks the plastics and now remove the plastics again.

Use a unibit or a small bit to start with and mark the center of the polish mark and drill.
Put the plastics back on a third time and make sure it's centered.

With the unibit you can drill in small increments checking a few times.

Not hard...

Personally it's an aluminum block with a steel bolt and I would just use anti-seize and tq to proper settings but that's just me and never had an issue.

Your going to need a bit that's a bit bigger than the slider, hole saw, also and there will be a bit of slack.

It really isn't bad if you just take your time.
I've done it a few times but yes a mistake can cost!

Now you don't want the initial drill hole to be too big cause you are eventually going to use this pilot hole and stick the bit of the hole saw in it and drill the real hole. With this initial hole centered though it should be fine.

@ OP.... Remember that unless you're using a torque wrench, Do Not over tighten the screws. Tight, yes. Death grip tight, NO!
